Scrolling to element using webdriver?

I am still learning and in response to one of my questions: here, I was told to that it might be due because the element in question is not in view.

I looked through the documentation and SO, here was the most relevant answer: here

You can use the “org.openqa.selenium.interactions.Actions” class to move to an element:

WebElement element = driver.findElement(By.id("my-id"));
Actions actions = new Actions(driver);
actions
.moveToElement(element);
## actions.click();
actions
.perform();

When I try to use the above to scroll to the element:
It says WebElement not defined.

I think this is because I have not imported the relevant module. Can someone point out what I am supposed to import?

Edit:
As pointed out by alecxe, this was java code.

But in the meantime right after trying to figure it out for some time. I have found out the import method for WebElement:

from selenium.webdriver.remote.webelement import WebElement

Might help someone like me.

The how of it is also a good lesson, IMO:

Went to: Documentation
The

class selenium.webdriver.remote.webelement.WebElement(parent, id_, w3c=False)

Need to be separated into the command form mentioned above.

You are trying to run Java code with Python. In Python/Selenium, the org.openqa.selenium.interactions.Actions are reflected in ActionChains class:

from selenium.webdriver.common.action_chains import ActionChains
element
= driver.find_element_by_id("my-id")
actions
= ActionChains(driver)
actions
.move_to_element(element).perform()

Or, you can also “scroll into view” via scrollIntoView():

driver.execute_script("arguments[0].scrollIntoView();", element)
